This two-article series presents an overview of circuit symbols and also provides some information on the components themselves. In the previous article, we covered the symbols for passive components and diodes, which are semiconductor devices that don’t provide amplification.
Learn the electrical symbols of basic electronic components, including passive components (resistors, capacitors, inductors, transformers), diodes, and thyristors. Electrical symbols are a short-hand way of indicating which components are involved in a circuit schematic.
This article will discuss what rigid-flex PCBs are, the advantages of using them, and the rules for designing with them for an application. In electronics, we sometimes encounter seemingly new technologies that have roots in the past.
If you’ve ever written any Python at all, the chances are you’ve used iterators without even realising it.
In this article, we’ll go over the basics of generating manufacturing files for PCB design and manufacturing. When you’re working on a PCB layout, you are editing a file that is specific to your CAD software.
There are few electrical engineers these days who do not regularly interact, at least indirectly, with embedded processors.
There is one thing that unites almost every computer and logic circuit commonly used in the hardware hacking and experimentation arena. No matter what its age, speed, or internal configuration, electronics speak to the world through logic level I/O.
In this article, we’ll discuss MOSFET characteristics related to transient conditions and switch-mode operation.
I don’t deny that it is possible to design a PCB without a ground plane, and in many cases you can create a fully functional board this way (or at least it will be fully functional when operating in a favorable environment).
